Sullivan’s Cove whisky coming to the U.S.

April 12th, 2009

The people who will be bringing in Amrut Indian whisky to the U.S. will also be importing Sullivan’s Cove whisky. Sullivan’s cove is Tasmanian whisky, distilled  in a copper pot still.

The rep that I spoke with told me that new owners took over the distillery in 2001. The sample I tasted was about 7 years old and was matured in both port and bourbon casks. He also told me that there will be individual bottlings of port or bourbon.

Expect to see the whisky in the U.S. sometime around Labor day.

    Having tasted one or two of the Amrut whiskies I think this is excellent news for the US. They are fantastic drams.

    butephota: Yes, I’ve enjoyed them. Will be a great addition to the whisky landscape here in the US., just like Japanese whisky has been.

    do not- I repeat do not overlook the tassie bottler, in particular the sullivans cove label…I prefer the white wrapper
    you will not be dissapointed. If I get any visitors in from down under– required gift in hand I assure you. The last bottle I recieved almost a year ago…I ‘ve got plenty of hitters in the rack from Kentucky to Scotland, some aged to donkey years. But this Sullivans , I horde like a crack head on his last rock of a 3 day bender. Been available up north in one of the America Jr. provinces only on this continent.. so this is good news
    Subtle, spring like in oak, and very smooth
